Yellow Cab buys Roy’s Taxi

At the Austinbloggers meetup last night, we relocated from FlightPath over to The Parlor due to lack of seating. The parking at The Parlor was worse because of a gaggle of Roy’s Taxi cabs that were double-parked throughout the North Loop shopping center. One driver asked me in broken english where “monkey” something was. Turns out he was looking for Monkeywrench Books. The Roy’s Taxi drivers were meeting to discuss their recent acquistion by rival Yellow Cab. Rumor has it that the driver compensation at Yellow is worse than at Roy’s. You can draw your own conclusions about the meeting’s location and its agenda.

Prentiss mentioned that he tried to use Roy’s because it’s local, but that they’re too unreliable. If you must use Yellow Cab, go for the Land Yacht. A friend took it last week and had nothing but good things to say about the experience. He may be in high demand at peak hours, though.

    I thought I was going to get beaten up at The Parlor when I said in a loud voice, “Well finally the hipsters at Monkeywrench are actually doing something!” :-)
